IMO I'd try and find a donor WRX that has been totaled (preferably from the rear
) and swap the drivetrains. Much less headache. If you ever mess up or go crazy with your transplanted build, you will always have your well taken care-of 2.5i drivetrain to fall back on.
Beautiful, beautiful pristine example of a 2.5i... keep it that way!
I appreciate all the good words, so thank you guys!
Ill be running low boost and talking closely with my builder with motor plans. I do agree with you, but its too late
You guys are just gonna have to see what happens with the build
